The freeze is not about equality and it never was, it is about cost cutting, cost cutting of huge sums of money spent for minimal gain of a dead technology.
Then why has the FIA opened the door, once again, for the teams to review (limit or 'equalize') the mercedes engine inline with the other engines, whatever that means.
They either have an 'illegal' engine (for lack of a better word) or not. If not, why has the FIA opened this up again?
The FIA did not open it up again... it was some of the teams that were complaining(just like the first time with Renault & Honda)... the solution that the FIA suggested was that if the teams agree
(why Merc would ever agree is beyond me) they can put in place a way to equalize the engines but only by reigning in the most powerful ones, rather than giving the weaker ones more development time(and thus money). COST CUTTING
Please, Please read the original reports closely... it is all in plain sight, and in clear laguauge... I dont understand why so many on this board choose to ignore what is clearly in front of them and then blame the FIA for all the decisions that are made by the teams.http://www.f1technical.net/news/13360http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/78776
Read carefully it is the teams who are asking for equalization, not the FIA, the FIA merely says that if the teams
want equalization it can be done if they can agree to it unanimously, but only by restricting the powerful units, not by spending million to upgrade the weak ones.
